Thomas has a good work-a-round but not really an official update program as such, would be good to have something along those lines.
No more downloading ISO's just run the update program and it does the work.


I see where you are coming from but every update is really new release. It has to be updated in one go.

So long as I can KEEP a physical copy from an on-line update, then I'm happy. :)

Congrats to the MorphOS dev team.



This is slightly off-topic, but since Lurch was talking about updates done via AmiUpdate... I have AmiUpdate set to save the downloaded archives of all updates to disk. So, I can make my own physical backups if I want to. That more or less addresses the risks that you list.

Personally, I prefer having a combination of small "automatic" updates, and periodically having new ISOs with all of the small updates included. That's the "best of both worlds."

Nice work folks.
Might try to get this working over the weekend if I have time.

Seems like a nice release, but still no sound on my Apple Digital Audio G4. And still no support for my USB C-Media audio device. Not useful for me…

I'm baffled why you wouldn't just install a SoundBlaster Live.

As long as we are stuck with Trident, you'll never see a USB audio card work with MorphOS, Aros, Amithlon, Amiga OS, etc.

I know, it sucks!

But ya, get a freaking Sound Blaster dude! It's not like we've got a ton of proffesional audio apps that require a professional sound card. Heck no one ever wrote a PuhDerBear for MorphOS so we can't even use our classic non AHI audio apps for that matter...

...not that they'd require a high end sound card but still.

Rumours have it that MorphOS will get a class driver for isochronous transfers. This is the prerequisite for all those streaming devices (usb soundcards, speakers, webcams) to work.

But it's only rumoures...

This release has been the best so far with my Mac mini G4. No more of those bsdsocket errors. I have it hooked up to a nice 1900 x 1200 display and have finally got my fonts sorted out. The OWB browser is very nice also.

The hardware support still impresses. Is there any hope that Nvidia cards will get some love some day or is that simply out of the question?

I believe my PowerMac G5 A1117 model will be added to the hardware list at some point but that won't matter since I have an Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX installed. It took a while to find one of these and I had to hack the ROM myself.

My guess is that if that model is eventually supported that you are going to have to switch over to a Radeon X1900GT.
I doubt Nvidia cards will ever be supported.

Why should I? The on-board sound is listed as supported, so it should work. But it does not. Seems that MorphOS team and I have different definitions of "supported". And despite the fact that this issue is reported quite often the only help is "buy a SoundBlaster". No other hints, tricks, debug support (fill in the rest), only this solution: "buy".

And by the way, I have a ATI 9800pro with a big fan blocking one PCI slot and all other slots are equipped with USB 2.0 and a SATA controller. So there is no place for a SB Live.
So why should I buy the card or even MorphOS (despite the fact that I really like my MOS 1.4.5 on my Amiga4000)?

WTF has the settings app for Poseidon do to with wether such devices work or won't ???

Poseidon itself can do those isochronous transfers needed, but AFAIK it's currently only supported in the Deneb's driver.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Your explanation makes sense.
If it is listed as supported, it should work.
SB Live cards ARE cheap, but you obviously can not fit one in (without changing your video card cooler).

Hopefully a developer will address your sound issue.
Try bringing it up on MorphZone.

Personally, I'd find a single slot video card, place a low height USB card next to the video card, and install a sound card.

Kookytech/Danwood made a very nice youtube presentation of the 3.6 features.

I must say MorphOS looks very nice!
